Here’s What You May Have Missed from ACM Awards


ACM Awards took place in Las Vegas on Monday evening and was hosted by Dolly Parton, Gabby Barrett, and Jimmie Allen.

The two-hour event, for the first time, was live on Amazon Prime and not on a major network television station. Commercial free, the ACM Awards featured all-star lineup performances and collaborations featuring 22 performances from 28 artists.

  • While not in person this year for the first time in 17 years due to performing at the C2C Festival, Miranda Lambert had her first win for Entertainer of the Year, and her win qualifies her for the coveted Triple Crown Award (New Female/Male Artist of the Year, Female/Male Artist of the Year, and Entertainer of the Year). Her two wins bring her total ACM Awards count to 37, more than any artist in ACM Awards history.
